See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

Southwest Air has officially launched international service to the Caribbean. Via AirTrans, it now offers flights to the Bahamas, Aruba and Jamaica from Baltimore, Orlando, Atlanta, Boston and Pittsburgh. In August, the airline — which is the nation’s largest domestic carrier — will begin flights to Cancun and Los Cabos; in August, it will fly to Mexico City and Punta Cana.

Delta, which already offers flights to the Caribbean, has announced three new, non-stop services: John F. Kennedy International Airport (New York) to Barbados, John F. Kennedy International Airport to St. Lucia, and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (Atlanta) to Barbados.

Both Southwest Air and Delta Airlines cater to families with in-flight Wi-Fi, changing facilities, and more.
